Do you have an itch to explore America? Do you have a desire to help survivors of abuse? This might be the volunteer opportunity you've been looking for!

Here at Families to Freedom we are dependant on volunteer drivers to carry out our mission statement to "Transport victims of domestic abuse to safety." We urgently need amazing people like you to drive victims to safety.

We receive calls from victims every day, but we are unable to meet every need without your help!

Volunteer drivers pick up victims at a safe public location and bring them a family or friend home far away or to a domestic violence shelter in Houston and surrounding areas.

Volunteer safety is our #1 priority and we have strict protocols to keep you safe. Travel costs are paid for by the organization including: food, lodging, tolls and gas. You also have the option to use one of our company vehicles for travel.You have the freedom to decide how far you are able to drive: across town or beyond the Texas border. Exploring America and saving people from abuse - sounds like a dream!

If you want to be a hero to the next survivor of domestic violence, contact us today and volunteer your summer doing some good!

Critera for volunteers: Must be 21 years old, pass a criminal and driving background check, and attend all volunteer trainings.

Mission Statement

Our mission is transport victims of domestic abuse to safety.

Description

Families to Freedom provides free transportation services to victims and their children who have experienced domestic abuse. We make it possible for victims and new survivors to get far away from abusive relationships. Our life-saving services include car rides to domestic violence shelters across the region, road trips to family homes in other states, multi-state bus tickets, and fuel assistance to relocate far away. We serve victims and new survivors across North Texas, East Texas, and the Gulf Coast area. We drive over 900 victims and children each year between two offices located in Dallas and Houston. We rely on the generous support of the community to continue providing these services at no cost to the victims who call us.
